Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The room was very dirty. I asked to change room and the second was also dirty so much dust everywhere and toothpaste on the mirror.Because of Covid 19 I had wipes and sanitizer so I cleaned everything. This should never happen in a hotel in regular times but even more nowadays with Covid.It was our third time in this hotel but we won’t come back.
